Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
Contemporary bluegrass band True North is made up of two married couples. They take it light, reasonably slow, and mellow. Think happy, but not giddy. No fast picking here. There's a nice balance between male and female voices, sometimes solo, sometimes in unison, sometimes in harmony. Great when you want to slow things down, go acoustic, recover from ear-bleeding dynamics, or otherwise need a palate cleanser. From the band's website: "Hailing from Oregon's Willamette Valley, Americana quartet True North combines traditional bluegrass instrumentation with fat harmonies and folk-edged songwriting for a decidedly modern acoustic sound." --Gerald Etkind
